How is it a positive self-esteem builder for the Malta Bend school and board to continually place the students under their care and responsibility to playing sports where they always LOSE? The school needs to do better by the kids whose futures are at stake here. Either get serious and hire coaches that can actually make these teams respectable or shut it down and stop forcing these kids be the laughing stock of high school sports as the school's reputation has been now for years.

SHAMEFUL!!!
